Well, what you could(to relate to ranks, or charactor stats), is that after getting a certain amont of ratings from others based on useful posts/threads, you could have an actual Rank on the site in terms of information suppliers...
does that make sense?
So people will put more time into making sure that what they say is usefull rather then just a line that says "id rather have a manual transmission".
I know not every thread is asking for advice or how to do something, but giving ranks based on ratings that others give you will make this community better.
especially if people care about their ranks.
and as far as rewards go, you could reward someone for getting to a certain rank.
rank 1 = free decals
rank 2 = decals + shirt
rank 3 = ____
and you could have names for each rank like:
oh i dont know...um...Professor...or something witty, lol...
but you guys should get the idea..
in a nutshell:
rewarded for getting to a certain rank by giving usefull information.
as for recruiting more people, advertising is always a #1...only thing i can think of is PMing people on forums asking for DIY info or something, and tell them about UB and how good we are in information along that platform
now that im here more often, i can help out with E30 technical issues as much as possible. if that helps at all
^^ We tried that once with vbulletin reputation points and it didn't really work out.
See that thread.
Or am I misunderstanding you?
